  • I read somewhere that robbing banks is one of the dumbest crimes one can commit. No matter how low life and prosecution free some banks are.


      Banks don’t have that much cash in them these days. The old style construction, like BOA in Eureka, have vaults in the basement that have become places for breaks with ping pong tables.

      The money transport rigs are where the loot is.

      • I worked for a Armored Car service down south not much cash mostly cancelled checks.

        • Humboldt and Mendocino are rumored to be very different in that regard. Several people have told me that unlike other areas, our area has large amounts of cash heading back by armored truck to the Federal banking system from our local financial institutions.

          • LAZY SKUNK RANCH

            The ORDER put an end to the wild west days. Yea, Triangle banks will have more cash than say, a bank in Boring, Oregon, but it’s still going to be mostly checks. The federal reserve has a patent on their check machine and has been touted as something horrible to lose if America ever ends the fed.
